Hello from New Jersey (1 Viewer)

Hi all,
I have only been on StP for a few months now, mostly lurking, but felt it was about time to introduce myself. I am in my early 50's and currently live in New Jersey. Looking to retire in a few years and move up to northern Michigan where I have a piece of land and a cabin. The cabin needs some work to make it more sustainable and get it off the grid. But once I retire, guess I will have the time to do it. Northern Michigan winters can be brutal so I am also planning on hitting the road in my truck, when things get too cold. I have a 1996 F150 with an extended cab which I think will work nicely. Will need to get a cap on the bed and make some improvements, but feel I can definitely use it to live in if I head down to the southwest for part of the winter.

I have to say this site is really great. The people here are so open and willing to share their wisdom and asking for nothing in return. It's awesome to find a community like this and I am happy to be a part of it.
We sell all kinds of other stuff in our Etsy store!


I'm a d-bag and got banned.

Total amount

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $25.00 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $25.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully this will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $25.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $25.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
